The 15 best PC first person shooters

Trying to find the best first person shooters on PC is no easy task, for more than two decades PC FPS games have been the driving force of the games industry. They let us travel from the depths of Hell to the outer reaches of space, taking a detour through underwater cities and metropoli in the sky. They are the best of all the games.

In no particular order, these are the fifteen best FPS games I think most demand your attention.

Far Cry: The Wild Expedition compilation is cheaper on PC, out February 21 in the UK

What if I told you that Ubisoft had decided to expedite the release of their Far Cry compilation? Haha! Actually, we’ve no reason to suspect that The Wild Expedition was ever intended for anyhing other than a February 21 UK release. We mustn't allow humour to cloud the facts, in this, The News.

It’s a grudgingly great deal: all four Far Crys to date, including a prettier version of the Crytek one, for £24.99. That’s a fiver less than on the consoles.

Assassin's Creed IV owes more to "comments about Far Cry 3" than Assassin's Creed III

Assassin's Creed IV owes more to "comments about Far Cry 3" than Assassin's Creed III

As every employee at Abstergo Entertainment knows, you can tell great stories if only you’re willing to fudge history a little. It would be easy to weave a narrative in which Assassin’s Creed 3 saw Ubisoft Montreal recognise their own hubris, and Black Flag display their newfound humility - but the truth is that the two projects were in the works simultaneously.

In fact, Black Flag learned its strongest lessons from its more lately successful sister series - Far Cry.

Far Cry: The Wild Expedition is an anthology coming out on the most romantic day of the year

Romance is stabbing a tiger in the face and skinning it to make a fashionable bag. It's stalking an enemy, silently, and then shooting it in the head. It's parachuting off a huge mountain, landing in an enemy base and then burning everyone with a flamethrower. 

So I can't think of a better day than Valentines Day, February 14th, for Far Cry: The Wild Expedition, collecting Far Cry 1 to 3 and Blood Dragon, to launch.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon trailer says goodbye to LA, hello to cyborg sword-fighting

If you’ve read the premise for Blood Dragon, it’s likely your brain initiated automatic HAHAHAH protocol long before you reached the bit about a “rogue cyborg army". If not, and if one of your remaining questions about the game before its May 1 release is, “Precisely how does a cyborg army go rogue?", you’re in luck.

Hands on with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Hands on with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Blood Dragon is a standalone Far Cry 3 total conversion available to download on May 1st. It’s an explosive parody of 80s sci-fi action movies and videogames, a neon-infused send up of the likes of Terminator 2 and Bionic Commando that also pokes fun at modern FPS tropes. It features a silly, laboured tutorial, an overly macho cyborg protagonist, an overbearing AI sidekick and a blacklit island terrorised by giant lizards who shoot lasers from their eyes. It’s stupid, but a very enjoyable sort of stupid.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon footage seeps colourfully into the eyes and ears of the waiting internet

Somehow, someway, a release-state 15-minute intro sequence for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has been filched from an electro-drawer at Ubisoft Montreal and tranferred to the hive mind via a Flash Gordon drive. The video is precisely long enough to confirm that the summer belongs to openly parodic ‘80s-future cyborg commandoing.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, please don’t be an April fool because I think I love you

A teaser trailer released on 1 April for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon suggests the standalone expansion to Ubisoft’s open world shooter is to be a 80s pulp action movie homage, inspired by the likes of Terminator, Tron, Escape from New York, and Michael Biehn.

Yes, the date of the video’s release suggests tomfoolery but this isn’t the first we’ve heard of the project, suggesting it was simply a poor choice by the marketing team.

Brazilian ratings board certifies "Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon," boxart spotted

A Brazilian ratings board has awarded an 18+ rating to a forthcoming title by the name of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, suggesting we're likely to see a Far Cry 3 spinoff very soon. Furthermore, a poster on the NeoGAF forums has shared an image that may be leaked boxart for an Xbox Live Arcade release, though it looks very different to the game's other promotional material and looks particulary eighties. Not that that's a bad thing.

We learned about the patch last month but here it is, out in the open, and ready for the installing.

Let’s have a look at its full contents, shall we.

Dishonored takes Best Game at Baftas

Are you ready to hear a fact? The very best games of the last year - even the cross-platform ones - all had their roots firmly embedded in the soft peat of PC gaming. That state of affairs was gently drummed into everybody’s skulls at regular beats during last night’s gaming Baftas, which saw Dishonored, Far Cry 3 and XCOM loaded up with plaudits.

The Weekly Playlist: the one where Julian and Paul run away from dangerous beasts

This week's playlist has accounts of two of the PCGamesN staff standing up for what they believe in - their right to flee at a moments notice, leaving the dangerous work of gaming to their heavily armed NPCs/teammates - and the other find that there is a little place in his idyllic homelife for WarFace.

See what we've been up to this past week in the latest edition of The Weekly Playlist.

Far Cry 2 was “the whole wrong direction” for the series, says Crytek CEO

Far Cry 2 was “the whole wrong direction” for the series, says Crytek CEOSo I’m listening back to my recording of the chat I had with Crytek’s Cevat Yerli, and there’s a bit that’s all creaking chairs and cleared throats. We’ve talked Warface, free to play and the saving of Vigil. I’ve been impressed by the clarity of vision of a man who talks about the future as if it’s already happened. Now there’s time for one more question, and I’m flipping through my notebook, looking for something I scribbled on the plane.

“Ah," I said. “Mmm. I wanted to ask you what you thought of Far Cry 3".

Far Cry 3 map making tutorial: mapping made easyThe Far Cry games have all shipped with level editors. Some were complex, powerful engines like the first game’s CryEngine which baffled all but the brightest budding level designers; others, like that of Far Cry 2 and Instincts, were simpler to control but limited in what they could create. Ubisoft’s latest iteration finds a comfortable middle ground, one which you should definitely have a dabble with.

We've already picked out some of the best maps players have been creating. Here's how you can start making your own.
